    Tapering off metformin caused flu-like symptons and bottom of feet to feel tender

    Hello everyone,
    I'm trying to get off the Metformin because it has caused me to lose my hair. Also because my blood glucose levels are controlled (normally 95-120 fasting 8 hours, and less than 140 after meals). My latest AC 1 taken 3 months ago was 5.8.
    I've tried getting off Metformin earlier this year (February), but I started to get diabetic symptoms back so I went back on it on the fifth day.Earlier this week, I tried to get off Metformin again, but this time I didn't quit complete, but rather am tapering off by taking half of a 500 mg instead of a whole 500 mg.
    The first few days I was fine, but yesterday and today I was miserable. I started getting flu-like symptoms, breathing was sort of hard, felt tired and the bottom of my feet are tender and feels like I suffered some muscle loss down there. I also found ketones in my system. But during this ordeal, my blood glucose levels have stayed the same. I haven't found any spikes in blood glucose levels in fasting, before and after meals.
    Has anyone ever experienced Metformin withdrawal symptoms like these? I can't find any additional information about this online and my doctors and pharmacists have no clue about why this is happening.

    Are you doing this on your own or with the help of a doctor. I have not experienced any hair loss with Met but not everyone has the same side effects. The person you should be talking to is your doctor.

    Are you doing this on your own, or under your doctors' supervision? I don't think it's a good idea to try on your own. If your bg levels are still good then it would be a good idea to talk to the Dr about these new symptoms. Maybe it really is the flu and the foot thing sound like it might be plantar's faciitis. It is an inflamation of the tissues of the bottom of the feet. Been there, done that, not fun. Good luck and take care.
